Have you checked out the new header image yet??? Take a look up there ^^^^^^^
Isn’t she looking good for a new mummy!!
We are officially in the 5th day of motherhood and Eve is still being a textbook-hammy-mom!
Now I feel I should explain how I am getting these photographs of the babies, as its quite obvious I am within her cage and close to her nest.
Well, I am actually using my proper handheld camera (not my iPhone) so I am getting clearer pictures which I have zoomed in to get some of the images you see on the blog. I am not poking it right up against them I am staying a reasonable distance away.
Also Eve is happy enough to let me oggle! She crawls around, has a run in her saucer and gets herself a drink and snack all whilst I gush over the babies! I mean who wouldnt! Eve knows I am not a threat and is very trusting of me.
Its very special knowing that she trusts me enough to peek into her nest. I am very careful not to touch anything and I never stay longer than 5 minutes so she has become very used to me being around her and the babies which is a relief.
They all seem to be suckling well (as you can see from the photograph) which is a relief as new-mums aren’t always very comfortable feeding babies.
Eve is doing a blinding job as shes got 13 babies which is WAYYY above average for Syrians in the first place.
